Heh, it's too hot around here for a heated cat bed. At least this time of year. Miss Daisy has been claiming this bed first, lately, and Bonkers still manages to squeeze in with her. Time for some new pics!

Hello Bob! We like to meet new kitties. Our Human has not been giving us regular access to the computer lately, so we have not been able to update. But Bonkers will find a way.

Bonkers will grab control of this bed if Miss Daisy doesn't get there first.

Wil, thanks for sharing this. I was in my early 20's when I first saw Stand By Me, and it instantly took me back to my own 'awkward years'. . .complete with bittersweet memories. I was a Gordie when I was young. Since then, I have watched younger generations watch the movie and be moved by the writing, acting and directing. It has taken on a timeless quality, and can be truly called a classic. I look forward to adding the BR version to my collection. And the NPR interview was great. Cheers! Ahud

Wil, I hope you have a great time at PAX. Smart move to limit your meet/greet time, so you can actually enjoy the con. One question: why did you decide to do PAX and not Dragon this year? Ahud

My mother taught with Ralph Baer's wife when I was a kid. I actually got to go down in his basement and play with the Odyssey and his version of Pong. And I still have my Commodore 128 with the 5-inch disk drive. I'm such a geek. Oh wait a minute, that's you. ahud

Typepad rules! It allows you enough room to tinker/modify, w/out requiring you to do coding. On the suggestion above to use the 'flexible' setting: it applies to the center section but has one problem. When you use it, that space can shrink down to an inch across for those with 14-inch monitors. Makes for a *very* long front page.
